A migraine is usually described as a very painful shudder or pounding pain around the head.

Some people have the pain in one part while others have the pain around the forehead, around

the eyes or at the back of the head. Some people experience this pain in one side of the head.

This is known as unilateral headache which often changes from one side to another. Doctors

have concluded that in unilateral headaches, the pain usually occurs on one side of the head but

if the pain seems to change, then it is considered a secondary headache which leads to other

ailments such as brain tumor. To stay from this serious disorder and as well to keep your brain

healthy, you need to do regular exercise, eat healthy diet and reduce stress.

It is important to note that migraines occur in different stages and as well it varies from one

person to the other. Therefore some symptoms which manifest in one person may be different

in another person. Age is also a factor in determining migraine symptoms since children, middle-
aged and elderly people. Some people may just be experiencing normal headaches which can

be treated by taking normal pain killers others may be having head aches as a result of stress,

depression or even eye complications.

Migraine Attack Symptoms

Some very common symptoms of migraines include a painful headache which is usually

throbbing and intense; blur vision which would be affected by flickering of lights or too many

colours appearing at once, sensitivity to sound, vomiting, nausea, sometimes diarrhea, cold

hands and or feet and unnatural lack of colour in the skin especially on the face. If they become

sensitive to light, they tend to lie in a quiet dark room which is also away from sounds. The

sound of someone typing on a keyboard may aggravate the pain one feels if he is suffering

from a migraine hence the need to isolate. Lack of sleep, feeling irritable, fatigued, anxiety,

euphoria, craving for certain foods are also some of the symptoms of migraines in some people.

For females, before they realizes that they are suffering from migraines the first time, the same

symptoms may appear to be similar to others such as pregnancy or fatigue therefore wasting

more time in treatment initially.

Some migraine sufferers may experience a visual aura without a headache. On certain

occasions, one may feel some sort of pins and needles sensation in the hand, the arm or

any other part of the body even the head. Some people also have hallucinations and unusual

tastes and smells. In some cases, one experiences dizziness where the person sees like the

environment is spinning and in other cases, seeing double vision. There are other forms of

migraine where someone may feel paralysed or weak but usually temporarily only. These

symptoms occur between moments of an onset of a migraine to days before the same.

At advanced stages, migraines are accompanied by neurological dysfunction. This is determined

by the part of the brain that is responsible for the headache which is characterized by the

dysfunction of the lower part of the brain that is normally responsible for the automatic activities

such as balance and consciousness.
